Caples Lake Fish Report

Caples Lake - Kirkwood, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The lake level is up and the fishing has been slow. Renee and I trolled a couple weeks ago for 4.5 hours with not a single hit. We used Rapalas to needlefish lures, I jigged a kastmaster while Renee tried powerbait. I saw a few anglers fishing at Woods creek and saw no action. We spoke to many boaters as they passed by, not a one had any success. A few anglers have reported in fishing from the shore by the dam. They were using salmon eggs or inflated night crawlers and caught a couple small rainbows. For more information stop by the Caples Lake Resort.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
